I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

A:Wake on Ring problem - Fax modem fails to wake PC reliably from standby

I may not be able to help, but I am curious - is this a dedicated telephone line?

If not, what services do you use, like call forward, messaging, call waiting, etc.

Or does the dedicated line have anything like that that you know of? (or didn't know of)

I have a Dell Optiplex 755 with WinXPPro SP3, 2GB RAM and an Intel Core 2 Duo E4600, and it is unreliable for Wake on LAN and Wake on Ring. I also wonder whether my Standby - Sleep - Suspend (S1 or S3) is working correctly.

When the PC is in Standby - Sleep - Suspend mode (S1 or S3), Wake on LAN and Wake on Ring work some of the time but not all of the time, and I'd like them to be 100% reliable.

These may be two different problems, but your advice will be appreciated. (Also, if I should post in a different forum, please advise.)

My Network Card is an Intel 82566DM-2 Gigabit Network Connection, and I recently upgraded its drivers using "generic" PROXP.exe from the Intel website, although this has not helped the problem. The specific driver file e1e5132.sys is now from 2009 -- it used to be from 2007. But, as I say, Wake on LAN from Standby was not and is still not reliable, both before and after the driver update.

In Settings .. Network Connections ... Local Area Connections ... Properties ... Configure ... Power Management, all the Wake on LAN options are checked ON:

- Wake on Directed Packet
- Wake on Magic Packet
- Wake on Magic Packet from Power Off State
- Wake on Link

The NIC card's Diagnostic checks are all OK.

A:Trouble with Wake on Ring, Wake on LAN and Standby - Sleep - Suspend

More to above: Dell has suggested I must re-install Windows. I've never done that, and I realize I'd probably lose all my applications and data - no good. Seems to me that's like using an atomic bomb to kill a mosquito. And why should I assume that will work?

But is there a way to re-install -- or maybe fix -- Windows that leaves everything else safe?

FYI - About a month or so ago, I ran SFC (System File Checker) in repair mode, and that didn't help with this problem.

Any ideas?

Often (and I mean very often) my modem doesn't send the 'request' for a new page or refresh for 10 or even 15 seconds! There is absolutely NO activity after I click on a link until it 'wakes up' so to speak. It happened to me on another computer too, and I've noticed that it seems to happen when I have a lot of info on my hard disk, is this a possible cause? I also happened to install Real Jukebox at the same time, could that have something to do with it?

Hi everyone,

My setup:
Dell running Windows XP SP2 with internal DSL modem, isp is xmission, Linksys WRT110 router.

I get my internet through the internal modem, and I'm able to access the internet on the computer that the modem is installed in, and then I have a network cable going from the box with my modem in it to a wireless router, and I have a good internet connection on all of my local boxes.

Now, I have an external IP address on that computer so I'm able to ssh, ping it, etc... I have tried numerous tutorials and guides on how to go through this computer and get into my local network to access machines in my home remotely from work, the road, etc...

But I think the internal modem gives me some problems, for some weird reason. I don't quite understand how to get through the router. I think what's happening is I have my internet gateway computer in front of the router, and then all the local boxes behind the router, and I can't get past the router.

Could anyone enlighten me as to how I would SSH into, or even PING machines in my local network from a remote location. Many thanks and Merry Christmas!

My interpretation is that you have dial-up internet access and are using ICS? Correct?

If the above is correct does the ICS machine connect to the router's WAN port or a LAN port?

Hi,

I've got Tecra Z50-A-11C and an external display connected to VGA port.
I set up Power Management plan to power off display after 10 minutes.

The monitor turns off after 10 minutes of inactivity.
The problem is it doesn't wake up on mouse mouse or key press.

I have to restart the laptop to get the picture back on the external screen.
The internal display works fine.

To me it seems like a BIOS problem but I've got the latest BIOS.
Any ideas?

Thanks,

A:Tecra Z50-A-11C: external display does not wake up

What happens if you press the function key (Fn + F5) in order to change the display output? Does this combination activate the external monitor again?
Did you notice the same issue using the hibernation or sleep mode?

I?m not quite sure if it really a notebook issue.
I mean the internal display is still working fine and it would be advisable to check this issue using different external monitors.

By the way: the notebook supports the Intel HD Graphics 4400. Try to install the latest Intel GPU driver:

I am using a brand new Lenovo P51 with 64-bit Windows 10 with a NVIDIA Quadro M1200 video card along with an external monitor (ASUS VS228H-P) connected through HDMI. When my computer goes to sleep, my second monitor turns off. When I wake up the laptop, but 2nd monitor is no longer recognized by the machine and I am unable to use the display. I have tried a number of solutions already:1) I have tried selecting "extend display" under F72) I have tried using the detect display button in System/Display Settings3) I have updated my drivers for both display adapaters (intel graphics 630, and NVIDIA Quadro M1200)4) I have turned the monitor on and off,5) I have cycled through the input options on the monitor while it is on6) I have plugged and unplugged the HDMI cable The only solution to reconnect the monitor I have found is to reboot the computer which is impractical for me while I am using the machine (I am running programs over multiple days and rebooting is not impossible). It is also impractical to turn off sleep mode on the machine - the whole point of having sleep mode is to save my screen and reduce power usage. I also use sleep mode for security - I want my laptop to lock so that someone can't just pick it up any time and use it. I also read somewhere that someone was able to turn off and then turn on the display adapters to reconnect - but this is a ridiculous fix I won't repeat over and over again. Outside of these solutions, has anyone found a way to make Win...

After returning from sleep, the external monitor does not seem to 'wake up'.
In order for it to receive input I need to unplug the HDMI cable and plug it in again.
I have updated all latest drivers, except the BIOS which is on A06 since I do not want to upgrade it (yet) since the higher versions currently cause the screen's brightness to flicker. Unless this BIOS is known to address these issues (not listed in the details) I do not see a reason to upgrade it (again).

If you put your machine to sleep, then all programs are suspended, so there is absolutely no point in leaving them "running". Most especially not if this causes errors on waking.

I currently have 4 external hard drives connected to my computer. I have each of them set to sleep after an hour of inactivity. However, if I am using the computer, they stay asleep, until I delete something; anything. Any time I send something to the recycle bin, all four of my external hard drives wake up.

I would like for this not to happen. I already went to the Recycle Bin Properties and set each external hard drive to "Don't move files to the recycle bin. Remove files immediately when deleted" thinking that it would quit checking them for deleted files.

I would much appreciate any help on how to prevent these external hard drives from turning on when I delete files off of my computer. And just to be clear, I am NOT deleting files that are on the externals, they are files that are on the Computer.

I use these forums a lot when I have a question, but I have never had the need to post before, so this is my first post. If this is in the incorrect sub-forum, I apologize.

A:External Hard Drives Wake Up When I Empty Recycle Bin

I have EXACTLY the same issue, it's unfortunate no one replied to this

I also set all my drives to "Don't move files to the recycle bin. Remove files immediately when deleted" and everytime I delete a file anywhere ALL external my drives wake up

Is there really no way around this? Is no one else having this issue? Does no one else have an external drive attached to his PC that he wants to sleep while idle? Why is Windows checking ALL the RECYCLE.BIN folders on ALL drives when I delete a file on ONE drive?

It would be really great if someone knew something about this, preferrably some way around this, so the drives can stay asleep when I do not intend to access them but just delete a file on a different drive.

My PC is a Dell Inspiron 531, running Windows 7 64 bit. I have occasional need to send/receive a fax. I have discovered the Windows Fax and Scan setup which says I need a fax modem. I understand an external fax modem can be used. My specific questions are [1] I am connected to broadband [2] are fax modems available for use with broadband [3] if so where can a good supplier be found and [4] is it difficult to install and setup a fax modem? [5] if only a dialup modem can be used how would that be setup with a broadband line and are there likely to be any conflicts between the broadband, dialup modem and an answer machine? I am only a novice level computer user so as much advise as possible would greatly appreciated.

A:USB External Modem

If you're planning to send and receive faxes at home, you first need to outfit your PC with a fax modem.
A fax modem is a relatively inexpensive piece of add-on hardware that allows your computer to communicate with a fax machine over a standard phone line. The devices are sold at major computer stores and come in two varieties: internal and external.
Internal fax modems plug directly into your computer motherboard, similar to a video or sound card. External fax modems are small devices that connect to the serial or USB ports.
If you're at work, another option is to see if your employer has a fax server—a dedicated computer equipped with multiple fax modems. Sending a fax using a fax server doesn't require you to add any special hardware to your PC. You just set up a connection with the fax server and go.

If fax and scan has any problems to do with broadband, which i doubt, go to this site for the solution :
How to Fax Over Broadband | eHow.com

Once you've picked up a fax modem or found a fax server, you still need to do a little setting up.
To set up a fax modem
Before you begin, make sure that you've properly installed your fax modem, and that it's plugged in to a standard analog phone line.
Click the Start button , click All Programs, and then click Windows Fax and Scan.
At the bottom of the left pane, click Fax, and then click New Fax on the toolbar to launch the Fax Setup wizard.

the modem? Will somebody please explain what this is all
about.

If they support V.90 it should work as a modem just fine. As fine as a USB connected modem can that is... (not a fan of USB modems)

V.92 is for modem-on-hold, which not many ISPs do support.

I also cannot access the Start button or disconnect from the taskbar. I cant enter My Computer, and when I type crtl+alt+del and try to restart, the computer hangs on "saving settings".
is there any way of fixing this problem, cause its mighty annoying.
Here is my pc specs:

I have an Acer Aspire 5552 laptop. It didn't come with a 56k modem so I purchased an external Conexant USB 2.0 56K modem. All is well the modem connects fine. But the PROBLEM... When i'm running only on battery power (with the ac cord disconnected) I connect to my internet provider at 40-44K every time. If I have the ac cord plugged in, I only connect at 21.6K every time. I've connected and reconnected hundreds of times and this is always the case. Why does having my ac cord plugged in make me connect at half of what i do when i'm running on battery power? This is very frustrating as 56K is slow anyway but when I connect at 40K at least its a lot faster than 21.6k! Please if anyone can help me on this issue I would greatly appreciate it. I think it has something to do with the modem being external because last year I had a Compaq laptop with an internal modem and usually connected at 40K with it. Is it a difference in the watts or power consumption while on battery power that makes it connect better. PLEASE HELP!!!

I think I may have gotten hosed?? I recently purchased (Ebay) a new Actiontec V.92 external Call Waiting modem. The auction, and box I received, has a Actiontec part number EXV9212-01CW on each. After opening the box and looking at the bottom of the modem was a Actiontec model number EX560LKC. Is this the same modem or did I get a totally different modem slipped into the correct box? I don't want to remove the wrapper or install it because it is sealed and may void any return chance I have. Any suggestions to identify this modem?

Thanks in advance. . .

I have a dell Inspirion 15r laptop. I live in an area that still does not have highspeed internet so i am forced to use dialup. My laptop did not come with a built in modem so i had to buy an external one.Dell recommend the conexant 56k external modem so I bought one from dell. From the moment i plugged it in and began using it I noticed that sometimes it would not connect.I use AOL as my ISP and kept getting messages that my modem was being blocked from connecting,the modem is unable to connect or the line is busy even when the phone line was working fine.I also would get booted off when online. One of my usb ports on my brand new laptop is now not working at all now and the modem began shorting out.I contacted dell and they sent me a new modem. This fixed my problem for about a week and now I am unable to get connected at all.Im getting the same messages. I just bought my laptop back in december.I contacted dell again today and they said I needed to conatct Conexant directly but they won't answer the phone when I call.Why was I able to get online fine when i first got the modem but now it won't work and is there a way to fix this? Im doing nothing different.

Hi Gang!

I am at work and we are having some problems with our external modem on our Windows 2000 server. Here is the situation, We have a Multi-Tech External Modem on Windows 2000 Server. The system properties shows that we have Com 1 and Com 2 and that both are working fine with no conflicts.

So now we have removed the modem so we can re-install it as we have had to do in the past. The modem is not recognized in Auto detect (ok) so we select it from a list and then the windo pops up asking us to select which com port...thats the problem, niether com port is listed in the box.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance,

Joel

My MF printer with FAX no longer functions properly. I have a fairly new Dell Laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium, an AT&T/Netgear Wireless/Modem Router, using AT&T stand-a-lone DSL Internet connection and use Magicjack VOIP phone service. I see thatWindows 7 has, Windows FAX and Scan, but to use it I must have a Fax Modem. What external Fax Modem with USB connector to plug into my laptop should I buy that is compatible with my system? For this novice,the external Fax Modem seems like the better way to handle Faxing and I would just then buy only a printer to copy & scan.
 

A:Solved: External FAX Modem

I don't think a fax modem and Windows Fax and Scan is the easier way to fax versus a multi-function printer/scanner/fax. You'll have the added step of scanning the document into your computer, saving it, and then sending it as an attachment using Fax and Scan. You'll also need to connect the phone line to the modem every time you want to fax. You'll also, obviously, need to have the computer powered on and connected to the phone line at all times if you expect to receive faxes.

I suggest you get a new multi-function unit to do your faxing.

I need to open the housing of a us robotics 56k external modem, but there is not any screw visible and I see it is risky to break the box if trying to separate the upper and lower parts of the box by hand. Is there any idea how to do it?

A:Us robotics 56k modem external

Try it with some small screwdrivers and/or knives. You might crack the case a little bit, but that can be glued together again. Just do it gently, it should open.
Replacement internal modems (better than the one you have), are quite cheap.
Opening it up will not do anything for you, unless you are an electronics specialist.

I'm testing out a new modem (I'm having so bad connection issues) and was able to get it to run a whoppin 23 hours before it disconnected. The ironic thing is, when it finally did disconnect, I couldn't reconnect for more than ten minutes! I _think_ it might be because it the modem overheated, I'm going to try again when I get home from school. Also, the modem wouldn't let go of the connection when I told it to disconnect. Umm.. that's about it.

Hey gang, how's it going. Got a little question. Tomorrow my boss wants me to hook up an external DSL modem to his Mac, even though I explained to him several times that I'm more familiar with PCs and actually know very little about Macs. But since he apparantly knows even less, he's afraid to even touch the thing and has "asked" me to do it. So since I essentially have no choice in the matter, I thought I'd at least try and get a heads up from the folks at my favorite support forum. That being the case, if anyone out there has any pointers or recommendations about hooking an external DSL modem up to a Mac, I'd be in your debt. All I know about the machine itself is that it's about ten years old. The people who sold him the modem and DSL service assured him that such an old machine could work with DSL. Guess we'll find out. Anyhow, should anyone out there have any tips or things to watch out for, etc., I'd really appreciate it. Thanks in advance for any info provided and also for the tons of info I've already gotten off this site. You guys have saved my life (or rather my computer's life) tons of times at this point and I really do appreciate it. I only hope someday someone asks a question that I can actually answer, so I can at least give something back. I'm kind of a novice at this sort of thing, but you never know, it could happen. Thanks again. Cheers.

Trying to install the Rockwell 56k External Modem onto a Dx4-100 machine.. Pc now won;t recognise the modem , but has done. Have a serial mouse on Com1 and trying to install modem onto Com2. No visible conflicts.
When adding the modem the DTR Led lights up and then goes out and the PC says it can't find any new modems. So the PC is talking to the modem..

Had the modem working once or twice but this disabled the mouse in IE5 and Freeserve.

Any help would be appreciated..
Have tried changing IRQ's to no avail
 

A:Rockwell External 56k Modem V.90

How are you testing it? Just with Add New Modem?

Maybe try this - shutdown, hook your mouse up to COM2 and boot to windows. Make sure mouse works ok. Then plug modem into COM1 and try it there.

I have an Aptiva 2137 p2(266Mhz),192m ram,w98se,running the standard lt winmodem.My connections generally are 31-33K,and the ISP is capable of 56k.Everything works just fine,but Im wondering if an external modem would give me a noticable bump in performance,and if I installed one,what do I have to do to make my apps(IE 5.5 and Winfax pro) use this modem
My current modem runs on Com1,as standard.
Also,some recommendations as to modems would be appreciated.
Thanks for any opinions that you have.
 

A:Lt winmodem vs external modem

First of all, there's no way to use the full 56k of a dial-up connection in a common telephone line. The speed you get is the normal, so staywith your modem. Anyway, if you want to change it to a external one, the best are the USRobotics. The difference between a winmodem and a external one is that the first uses the CPU for part of his job, while the second only uses the COM that it's attached to. To change the modem your applications use, you have tochoose it in the Properties of the Dial-up connection to your ISP. Good luck.

Does anyone know if you can control an external modem beyond a router, in other words is there a way to access the modem through the router. I have a Zoom 3049 modem with a serial connection to the router which connectes to the network. I would like to have this network limited to the internet, at least to novelists.
 

A:Controlling an external modem

Depending on the type of modem, some come with a web interface you can access. However, if you're looking to manage your network, the ideal place would be at the router, not the modem as the modem simply creates the connection to the internet.

I have given up on getting my internal modem working and have obtained an external from my sister--the problem is, I don't have the CD with the driver installation files. I did download the files from the Zoom.com website, but when I try to install, after several files are copied I get the message: "Turn your computer off, un-plug it and connect the modem. Be sure to leave the CD in the drive and re-start your computer."

Obviously, the installation program would continue from the CD if it were in the drive, but as I said, I don't have one! Is there any way to get around this so the installation will proceed from the downloaded files?

Thanks,
Drron

Why Won't My External Modem Work???

i have a us robotics sportster 56k external modem (005686, model 0459)... windows won't even detect it... the serial port's fine... i have the right drivers... i have the modem connected to com 2 via 25 pin male to 25 pin female (the modem has a 25 pin female connector on it) anyone know anything about this modem? i've seen people across the internet with probs with this modem, but no one seems to have any solutions

com 2 (what i'm trying to use) is enabled in bios, and works fine in windows (no conflicts)

there is no "assign irq for modem", or anything similar in my bios (Asus P5A-B)

THE MAIN PROBLEM IS THAT WINDOWS WON'T DETECT THE MODEM... IF IT WAS A SIMPLE CONFLICT PROBLEM, WINDOWS SHOULD AT LEAST DETECT THE MODEM
 

A:Won't detect USR external modem

You did check your serial port is enabled in bios? (probably). Have you tried adding it manualy?

More info on what you have done already could be useful.
